Computer & Software

With the new VRS-2400 product running the Digitome software under the locked Embedded Windows Standard 7 operating system, volumetric x-ray imaging of objects just got incredibly simple. The stability of the computer environment insures worry-free operation without additional IT issues for years to come.

The typical exam of an object will require 8 to 16 images from different perspectives. In terms of memory storage, this is only on the order of hundreds of megabytes at most. No large image database will be formed, as all planes viewed in the volumetric display are created in near-real time. Any plane image or scan set of images may be saved at the user’s discretion.

Image Processing & Video Software

Within the Digitome software, two-dimensional images can be exported in .png, .jpeg, .gif, .bmp and .tif file formats. A fly-through of an object can be saved as a series of images, generating an album of files in any of the above formats.  An album can then be used to generate an .avi movie. Because the output of the Digitome software is in these standard formats, these files can be used in a variety of third-party software for post-processing and input for other applications such as 3D printing.

One particularly useful open source image processing software is ImageJ, which can be downloaded at http://imagej.nih.gov/ij.

A variety of video editing software can be used to generate a fly-through movie. These include options like DaVinci Resolve (Windows), iMovie (Mac), Final Cut Pro (Mac), and Adobe Premiere (Windows and Mac), as well as other available video editing software.
